DENVER, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- ThinIdentity Corporation, a leader in improving caregiver workflow in healthcare environments, today announced the appointment of William J. Amelio and Carol J. Rizzo to its board of directors.
"We are pleased to have this caliber of executives join our board to help broaden the business and operating base as we meet our long-term growth objectives," said Roy Perry, CEO of ThinIdentity. "Both Bill and Carol will bring strong leadership skills, extensive management experience, and proven track records in making companies successful to ThinIdentity. We look forward to benefiting from their insights and experience."
Amelio brings a wealth of experience as former president and CEO of Lenovo Group Limited, the fourth-ranked PC computer vendor in the world, with $16 billion in revenue and 29,000 employees. At Lenovo, Amelio led the firm in strategy, operations, and day-to-day business execution. Prior to Lenovo, Amelio served as senior vice president, covering Asia-Pacific and Japan, for Dell Inc., with responsibility for strategy and operations across the region. In addition, Amelio has held senior executive positions at NCR Corporation, Honeywell International, and IBM.
"I am excited to be a part of an innovative and talented company like ThinIdentity that is so well-poised for growth. The thousands of workstations already installed proves the acceptance of their technology in the marketplace," said Amelio. "As CEO of Lenovo, many senior hospital executives expressed to me their frustrations with current technology and the difficulties of full adoption by healthcare professionals. ThinIdentity overcomes these obstacles and will be a leader in the healthcare market helping to drive the "meaningful use" of Electronic Medical Records which in turn will reduce healthcare costs."
